Cengage and McGraw-Hill Extend Merger Agreement Amid Delay

Lindsay McKenzie writes for Inside Higher Ed, “Publishers McGraw-Hill Education and Cengage … announced they are extending their merger agreement. The agreement was due to expire Feb. 1 if the two companies had not merged by that date. The agreement has now been extended to May 1.” The U.S. Department of Justice is still deciding whether to approve the merger, and other countries’ authorities have “raised concerns about the deal.”

Additionally, “several [U.S.] consumer advocacy groups have criticized the potential merger, which they say could raise prices for students. College bookstores have also opposed the deal. A spokesperson for both companies refuted these concerns, saying the merger ‘will allow us to offer students even more value and more affordable textbooks and course materials.’”
